Nvey Eco Organic Erase Concealer

On first swiping my brush against the concealer I thought there must be a see through protective cover that I had not spotted. However, in actuality it just has a really hard texture, somewhat reminiscent of Laura Mericer's Secret Camouflage.

On application the texture warms up and applies well with no tugging. It doesn't settle into lines and lasts reasonable well as long as you powder over it. The coverage is sheer to medium and I find it buildable without going cakey. It does have a heavier feel to it, yet manages to look quite natural on the skin. The deal breaker for me is the shade.
Of the three shades on offer I bought the lightest, called Neutral (£16). Its far too light for me to use under the eyes and highlights the darkness rather than covers.
I can just get away with it on the rest on my face (I'm a shade lighter than a MAC NW15), but I bought this for my under eyes as I had a feeling that the ingredients would cause congestion for my acne prone skin (which it did when I tested it on other parts of my face).
Not only is this extremely light in colour but it seems devoid of an undertone.

Swatches L-R: Estee Lauder Double wear Light 01, YSL Touche Eclat shade 2, Vapour Illusionist 01, Nvey Eco Neutral
Though I might sound negative I do actually quite like this. I am using it under the eyes as more of a base. I follow with a normal concealer and blend together. The Nvey Eco provides a good smooth base for concealment and the colour works to brighten the area.
I think if you have dry, non acne prone skin then this might be worth considering for a face concealer, and though the colour is too light for me, I do think its has the formula of a good under eye concealer for those with dry skin that only have moderate darkness.
The hunt for the perfect under eye concealer continues.


I bought this from


  1. I've heard this one is good, but I have combination skin so I don't think it would be good on me.

    You should try Lauren Brooke Cosmetique's concealer, it's my absolute favorite and it has amazing, acne fighting ingredients.

    1. Hi Mary,
      Yes, it might not be the best for combination skin.
      Thanks for the rec, I'll keep a look out for Lauren Brooke :)

  2. Hi
    How do you get the makeup in a condition to apply it. I havent worked out how to get through the protective cover problem.

  3. Hi Sarah,
    I just use a firm brush to get it out the container, put it on the back of my hand (this seems to warm it up a bit) and then apply from there :)
